BLCR is no longer maintained and SchedMD have removed the support that 
Slurm used to have for it. As Michael mentioned DMTCP is worth checking 
out (I've not used it personally, but it does seem to be actively 
developed). From my discussions with SchedMD they'd rather not build 
support in to Slurm for any particular solution.

All the best,
